You might want to purchase a PCI IDE controller, its an add-in card that 
has its own firmware for harddisks and thus doesn't rely on the system 
BIOS. Hopefully your BIOS allows to boot from add-in cards if they have 
their own system ROM firmware.

Something like this:

The software route would be a DDO
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Drive_Overlay ) but I don't know 
if these programs are freely available or only for sale (like Ontrack's 
old DDO software). Usually ends up giving lots of trouble when disk 
maintenance programs are running.
